If you're travelling from East Midlands Airport and you want to stay the night before at a good Hotel, try this one. The room we stayed in was very well laid out and the hotel is only approximately 10 minutes by car to the airport. Admittedly the food meal was only average but you can leave your car there when away and even if you exceed the 14 days of free parking the excess days aren't charged excessively.

Room Tip: Try a local pub' for eating....

We had an absolutely amazing day, as sister of the bride I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff. Especially the wedding coordinators Shelley and Emma both of which did an amazing job organising the day. We hadn't planned for the weather but the venue turned out to be perfect, the staff were friendly and the feel of the whole place was warm and inviting. My sister and brother in law were wed 23rd March 2013, and we wanted to share how great a day we all had dispite the snow! Fortunately the majority of guests stayed at the hotel and we didn't need to worry about people getting home just stumbling through the snow drifts around the courtyard! The meal was amazing and the hog roast went down a treat once the band had got everyone up and dancing it was a very emotional day but so happy. I hope I speak for everyone when I say I would recommend you to anyone who is thinking of getting married in the east midlands area. You were very accomodating we even had the opportunity to come up the day before and get the barn ready for the meal and also a special thanks to Mark who looked after some of the more difficult family members :)
Thank you for making their day so special and we appreciated all your help getting there to.

"Christening" party for grandson, involving party meal for all and accommodation for a few.
Great spacious venue, a bit cold but plenty of space. Food ok, accommodation superb, a spacious suite, but aircraft nosy at night.
Good tasty breakfast produce, service a bit slow, but overall pretty good.
Keep saying we'll try Sunday lunch there, but haven't so far.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are really glad that you enjoyed your party. We do carefully monitor temperatures throughout the venue and do have plenty of heating, including underfloor, but of course it is difficult to keep it just right for everybody. If anybody needs to warm up I can strongly recommend one of the comfy chairs by the log fire!

We don't currently offer a Sunday lunch menu but we are happy to accommodate group bookings with advance notice, and we have just added another open fire to the farmhouse lounge which would be an ideal place for a lunch party!

Looking forward to welcoming you and your family again soon.

Kind Regards,

Emma

We adore this place. My friends and I have stayed here for years when using Donington Park circuit as the hotel is located literally next door and so it's perfect for us.
The staff here are class A, professional and fun! Rooms are great, all different. I always call and ask for a free room upgrade and usually get it. It's cracking good value.
I look forward to coming back for more fun on the track and this brilliant little hotel.

I am delighted to write my second review for Park farmhouse Hotel ..... We celebrated our Mum's surprise 65th birthday party on Saturday evening in the Oak Room with our family and friends .... We had an absolutely fantastic evening. The staff were supportive and helpful, assisting us with all our needs; from the day before as we decorated the room to the Saturday evening coordinating the food (delicious hot pork rolls) the juke box, the lights, the pudding clear up and taxi ordering so our guests got home safely ... !!!
We had a truly memorable evening in a unique, friendly setting, with our family and friends - Thank you Park Farm staff for being part of this.

I have now stayed here three times with colleagues. It is a 5 minutes taxi ride from the East Midlands Airport - very close. Always the staff has been welcoming and were happy to alter menu items for us this time.
Very nice place, look forward to my next stay.

Stayed for one night whilst working in Derby last month.
What a treat! I was in a high-ceiling room with exposed wooden beams and brick walls. Nice rustic decor and the bed was incredibly comfortable.

Seems the hotel was very quiet but I couldn't fault it - staff were excellent, very friendly and accommodating and a very nice location. Will stay again.
